Judging by the comments around here in the last year or so, they appear to have succeeded.

Are there any twitter users on this board, I wonder.

I always figured if you were using Twitter regularly you weren't using message boards.

I know I don't use Twitter.

We get those Russian trolls here from time to time but to suggest they have any influence would be a stretch.

I click them because it's fun to troll the trolls.

Kinda made yourself look silly there, chief. Trolls using your boy Ezra as their centerpiece are just as bad as the ones using the CBC. Even worse considering @EzraLevant and @TheRebelTV are essentially the same thing.

I didn't write the article going OMG 8O "TWITTER TROLLS!!!" CBC did that. Not me. Not Ezra Levant.

And then it turns out the CBC is the most retweeted source of these Twitter Trolls they're complaining get retweeted. Image

And now it appears that you want to defend them. Image

Whatever. If anything I've been the harshest one here on the commentariat that CBC lends itself to - I've said multiple times that they shouldn't allow comments because their reader section is as bad and poisonous as Twitter or YouTube, and the taxpayer shouldn't be funding a platform for that kind of nonsense. Other that that though, despite some of their despicable readership, CBC isn't providing a fake-news clearing house. It still means that in terms of combined raw numbers that, compared to CBC, Ezra Levant is the toxic Ground Zero for political trolling in Canada. He's now the Canadian version of Breitbart/Alex Jones/Drudge/Gateway he always wanted to be.
